David LesterDavid Lester, Chiropractor

It’s great to be a chiropractor. I’ve been doing it more than 20 years and I’ve enjoyed most every second of it. I’ve never stopped training and learning, and I don’t think I’ll ever stop. I feel blessed to be in a profession that is so gratifying. It is amazing to work with people each and everyday and watch them as they become healthier and happier.

 

Over the years I’ve seen so many wonderful things happen to my patients. We work with people of all ages, from newborns to seniors. My gentle technique works well for just about everybody. We’ve served people with all levels of problems – everything from simple backaches to chronic, debilitating diseases. We treat generations of families who come to us because they know that our chiropractic care helps them become and stay healthy. Athletes who want to improve their focus, coordination, flexibility, and energy also come to us for care.

 

  

 

Donna 2016 200Donna Bruschi, Board Certified Lactation Consultant:

"I've been helping mothers and babies get breastfeeding right for them nearly 20 years and I still learn something new every day.

I love when I can encourage a new mom and give help when a family needs it. I am blessed to be paid for doing work I love! Over the years I’ve seen so many of my clients meet and exceed their breastfeeding goals. I am so proud of that accomplishment! It is amazing to witness a new mother, full of doubts, develop skill, confidence and intimate knowledge of her baby through breastfeeding!"

 A guided deep dive into your inner knowing.

Intuition is always guiding us, whether we choose to act on it or not. Pregnancy changes the way our brain works, making us more creative, right brained and intuitive. Mommy brain is real, though its purpose is misunderstood.

Learn how to channel your love and intuition into a powerful way of being that connects with and intuitively understands and responds to what your baby needs. Connect with your divine feminine, explore the power of receptivity and all that it can offer you.

Pregnancy is the first leg of your hero's journey through motherhood.

This monthly offering is designed to be started while trying to conceive, though it can be joined at any time before birth. It is to prepare you for your lifelong role of mother. While other classes focus on preparing for birth and breastfeeding, they leave you wholly unprepared for the unending and diverse challenges of mothering. When you can move fluidly between the realms of the heart and the mind, you become a mother who is nourished by her mothering.

Each circle is completely different from the previous and no two are the same. 

6:30-6:45     Introductions and centering

6:45- 7:15   Journaling, drawing and reflection

7:15-7:45     Sharing circle with a talking stick

7:45- 7:55    Dance time

7:55 - 8:15   Socializing and refreshments

8:15             Close

Each meeting starts with introductions.  We move into a guided meditation and centering that slows us down from the outside world and brings us into connection with our inner selves and baby.

Journaling is expecially insightful during your pregnancy.  Each mama is given Butterflies and Hiccups, a beautiful journal with writing prompts in which you can record your conception and pregnancy. Include the thoughts, feelings, intuitions and dreams you have of your baby. This is your time to reflect, record and validate the changes you experience as you move closer to birth. Journaling brings messages and learning from your heart and your higher self.

During the circle, share a story, a dream, or an event that happened to you. We use a talking stick so each person has a chance to share without interruptions, feedback or advice from the group. Feel the love of the group support and guide your sharing. If you would rather listen, pass the talking stick to the next in the circle.

We close with dance, socializing and refreshments so you move, stretch, replenish and chat.

 

Registration Options

"Butterflies and Hiccups" is part of the Café Mama Due Date Club, a friendly, non-judgmental place to make friends, learn what to expect, share stories and find out about resources and events for pregnant and new mamas. It is our hope and desire that our members continue to inspire one another and offer one another hope, friendship, love and support as they have for the past 3 years!

All Hudson Valley pregnant and expecting (adoptive, non-birth mother and surrogacy) mamas are welcome. We believe that being a mom is the hardest thing you will ever do and we respect your right to make choices that work best for you.
